April – Front Office Manager
April has a passion for working with patients and making dentistry a positive experience for everyone. After working as a dental assistant for 15 years, April took on the role of office manager for the last five. She earned her degree from Chemeketa Community College in 1999, where she obtained her certificate in expanded functions and sealant placement.
In her spare time, you will find April at the hockey rink watching her son, Braydon, play and her husband, Chris, coach. If you don’t find her there, check Washington Square — she loves to shop!
Rose – Lead Hygienist
I’m a native of Montana, Big Sky Country. I moved to Oregon to attend Portland Community College to obtain my Associate of Applied Science in dental hygiene and then got my Bachelor of Science from Eastern Oregon State College. I loved it here so much I decided to stay.
I actually taught dental hygiene courses part-time for a while at PCC after graduating. I held various long-term positions as a dental hygienist in the Portland area.
I love to stay busy with gardening in the summer, projects around the house and going on long walks with my dog.
